Samsung could be working to include faster charging technologies in its upcoming smartphones, according to a tweet from famed leaker Ice Universe. Presumably, this will make its debut in the company's upcoming flagship, which is expected to be called the Galaxy S10.
The message doesn't provide any specifics, simply hinting that the current 15W charging technology Samsung uses will "become history". A second tweet confirms that there is indeed new fast-charging technology on the way, but it still doesn't make things much clearer.
This upgrade may well be an attempt to fight back against OnePlus, who has typically had some of the faster charging speeds. Specifically, the company recently debuted Warp Charge one the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition, which can fill up the phone's battery to 50% in just 20 minutes, which might make traditional fast charging seem slow by comparison.
The rumors surrounding the Galaxy S10 have been endless, and they suggest that Samsung is changing things up in a number of ways. It will mark the debut of its Infinity-O displays on the Galaxy S line, include a total of up to six cameras depending on the model, and it will likely support 5G. The phones will also ship with the company's new One UI experience.
Samsung should reveal all the details about its upcoming flagship in February when the Mobile World Congress takes place in Barcelona.
